*Youlean at Musikmesse 2019


I’m Julijan Nikolic. (You may know me as Youlean)

In 2016, I created Youlean Loudness Meter as part of the KVR Developer Challenge (create the best free audio software).

To be honest, I was already fascinated with the new loudness measurement techniques but I was a bit stunned when I realized how expensive these types of plugins are. That was the moment I decided to build it by myself.

The proof that people loved it came really quickly – Youlean Loudness Meter was voted a clear winner of the KVR Challenge 2016.

After many lines of code and many hours, days and months later, I was able to bring to the users new PRO version which implemented many useful options which will save your time and improve your workflow. Also, the PRO version will help me to fund the future updates for Youlean Loudness Meter and other plugins too! 

Thanks everybody for your support!

The First Version vs The Latest One

Different Approach Than Most Developers

Lifetime free updates

“I love audio software, and there are some really cool companies and really cool plugins, but man, there is no worse feeling in the world when you need to PAY for the bugfixes i.e. updates. I really hate that, and I really hate that this is the way most of the audio companies do the business. 

This is not how I want to sell the software and that’s why I guarantee the lifetime free updates.”

Price below the average

“Once I learned about loudness metering using LUFS, I was really fascinated. The problem was that the plugins for measuring it were (and still are) really expensive and there were no free ones that can get you started.

So, I have decided to create a free loudness meter that will be even better than the most expensive ones.”

Optimize it for yourself

“I want to give the users the possibility to ask for the new features. Many features have been implemented in this way and I am always happy to assist you by building the features you need. In this way, Youlean Loudness Meter is becoming a high-quality software.

If there are any requests, users are always welcome to contact me.”
